The Madness of Dr. Caligari is Here

The Madness of Dr. Caligari is here! This tribute to the classic work of German Expressionist cinema The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari was edited by Joseph S. Pulver Sr. and features stories by many of the best and most interesting writers working in the genres of Horror and the Weird. It was released just before the holidays and seems to have been slightly overlooked, though I expect most of the people interested in this sort of thing will certainly find their way to a book like this, even if not on day one.
